Playable at Capcom Cup.
During the North American regional finals at this year's Red Bull Battlegrounds tournament, Capcom announced that recurring series antagonist Akuma will be added to 'Street Fighter V' as a playable character. No hard date was given for when he'll be added, but he will be playable for the first time at the Capcom Cup event being held at the PlayStation Experience on December 3rd. You can catch his teaser trailer below:
There's been a lot of speculation surrounding the kanji on his back, which implies he'll be playable in his Shin form. It's not clear though if he'll simply transform through his V Trigger, or he'll only be playable in that form. Either way, more new characters for 'SFV' is great, and I'm excited to check him out when he's added to the game.
